I never thought lock-picking was the weakness of bike locks.

Who “picks” a bike lock?

If I could pick locks, I wouldn’t be stealing bicycles...

Did you hear about the ship that was unsinkable?

I don’t know. I guess in China it’s more of a thing.

I remember going to the hardware store to buy a piece of chain for securing my motorcycle. I got the biggest chain they had (and also the biggest padlock they had).

We measured out 6 feet or so and the clerk got his bolt cutters and whacked it in two. Well, I used the chain anyway.

You need better chain. I remember in the Navy we had to cut a chain and I had the bright idea to use a pair of bolt cutters. The chain was so hard that it put dents in the bolt cutters.

It is. My bike was stolen in China (and I was told it would be, numerous times, because it looked too new and nice). I got it at the local Carrefour (french-owned grocery chain) for $40. Not sure what kind of an investment a $140 lock is for a $40 bike.

There is NOTHING IN THIS LIFE better than a Free Republic thread about guns or tools.

I agree with your tool selection ... In this case I think bike thieves will simply break something off inside the lock whenever they see one of these , a simple matchstick will do... very soon you won’t see these locks anymore.

Back in college I went by a bike rack and saw two partial bicycles locked up with U-locks. The first one had everything except a front wheel, and the second one only had a front wheel and really NASTY note on it. Seems the thief put together a bicycle from the unlocked portions of both, and the guy who lost his front tire (i.e., he had properly secured his bicycle) was not at all happy about his idiot neighbor.

It took me a while to figure out what had happened.

Interesting. Makes sense that hardened chain is available but a little cutting torch or hand grinder would quickly go through hardened steel.
